MHS-DHS Beats Lincoln Christian, 26-18

In a chilly early October contest in Milford Friday night, Milford-Dorchester opened up a first half lead against a solid Lincoln Christian squad and never looked back.  The combined Eagle-Longhorn squad beat the Crusaders 26-18.

Christian did score first in the opening quarter, but MHS-DHS answered relatively quickly with a 46-yard run.  The Crusaders recaptured the lead in the second quarter, only to find themselves trailing following a long march by MHS-DHS that was capped off by the first extra point of the contest.  

MHS-DHS added another TD and point-after, increasing their lead 20-12 at halftime.  Things got a little tight in the third quarter as the score narrowed to 20-18, but a TD run by DHS-MHS' Havlat ensured a 26-18 victory.

The Milford-Dorchester squad is now 4-2 on the season.  This coming Friday, they will travel to Raymond Central in a 7 p.m. contest, followed by a game in Milford against Lincoln Lutheran on Oct. 17.
